Tropical Lemon Squares

Addictively good lemon squares with a brown sugar-cashew crust and moist lemony coconut topping full of bits of yummy fruit. The lemon and fruit flavour develops as the squares are cooling so these squares are better after they are out of the oven for several hours. I have no idea how long these squares will keep because they are always gone within a day or so! Note: Golden raisins are a lot softer than other types of raisins and don't leave hard chewy bits in the squares, substituting other types of raisins in this recipe would likely not have the same outcome.
